Unsuccessful: Migration failure invalid directory

In AR 2018.4 I resored a v19 back up file, then upgraded offline to location My Library

Got the following error


Unsuccessful: Migration failure

Company File Name : C:\Users\Janet.kidson\AppData\Local\MYOB\Temp\artd 2018.MYO
Start Time : 09/01/2019 15:30:48 PM
End Time : 9/01/2019 3:30:50 PM

Migration errors:
Source : UpgradeUtility
Method : ValidatePremierDataFile
Error : (UpgradeValidationError): The directory name is invalid.

Unsuccessful upgrade!

The .myo file is in the directory C:\Users\Janet.kidson\AppData\Local\MYOB\Temp\artd 2018.MYO


Is it a problem with "My library" location

Re: Unsuccessful: Migration failure invalid directory

Hi @Migration


I understand from your post on most recent post Confirming Company File (Company File Code?) you have managed to upgrade a company file.

If you are still having trouble migrating that particular company file I would recommend restoring the file locally (right-clicking on the backup file and selecting Extract all) or, if already restored, move the company file to the desktop before selecting to upgrade that file. Do let us know if you require further assistance.

Kind regards,
